2019 Côte-Rôtie Les Rochins, Domaine Garon
Domaine Garon

The Garon family have been landowners in Ampuis for 500 years, but it wasn’t until 1982 that they started tending to the neglected vines on their land. Releasing their first cuvée in 1995, Jean-Francois Garon observed with little irony that "it wasn't bad for the vineyards to rest a hundred years between plantings." Today, this traditional producer makes three wines from the Côte-Rôtie’s Côte Blonde and one from the Côte Brune, all mostly destemmed and aged in a mix of new and older French oak.
